    Re: Advanced English Essay Writing Guide

    Approximately how many body paragraphs do you recommend writing? In 40 mins it seems that if I plan for 4 then I only get time to write 3 anyway - so is it better to have 3 well-written, in-depth paragraphs and skip a lesser point which otherwise would have been it's own paragraph?
    Thanks so much for this fantastic guide!

    If you have two texts to discuss, it is always recommended to have 4 body paragraphs-2 main points, idea 1-text 1, text 2, idea 2-text 1, text 2. You just need to practice to make sure you are writing faster and more concise, relevant paragraphs. For three texts, you should have three main body paragraphs with three main ideas-just focus on balanced discussion of texts

    Thanks, but considering that in every module except module A one text is only an ORT, does this not put too much emphasis on the ORT? Also, I don't know that I can really condense everything I have to say into two main points! The essay plan my teacher gave out had 6 body paragraphs - and that was with the ORT synthesised into each paragraph!! But I know I need to cut down from that - she just can't bear to miss telling us something we could include.

    And by the way strawberrye, how come you only seem to have 8 units in your signature?

    What do you mean by the ORT? Remember, to maximise your marks for an essay question, you need to be able to demonstrate your ability to select the MOST RELEVANT information to include for the question, not have a memory dump of everything you know about the texts to answer the question, remember, RELEVANCE of information is more important than the BREATH of information.

    The reason why I have 8 units is because previously some BOSers had their signatures cut short, so I wasn't sure whether that was going to happen to me, and I now can't be bothered to put up the marks for my other 4 units

    Re: Advanced English Essay Writing Guide

    I was getting C grade marks all year for my essays (horrible decline considering I was top 5 last year). I discovered this in the final term and used it for my Module C essay... All I can say is that I wished I'd discovered this earlier. I got an A grade mark for my essay and the teacher was extremely impressed. I've shown all of my friends and class mates this forum and they too felt that it's something that should've been taught as apart of the curriculum.

    Also loved re-reading all of the little remarks in the post.

    Paper 1 tomorrow.
    I've planned out my structure using this tried and tested method.
    Absolutely recommend this to everyone.

    Great tips. I'll use it the next time.
    Just one more thing and very funny one, I guess. I've used the help of 'supreme essay' guys not so while ago. They helped me a lot.
